En Jul "Lave og Tage" ... A Christmas Make and Take

I aftes tog jeg til Have Oase for en aften sammen med min svigermor og svigerinde for en "Jul Lave og Tage". Vi bragte ting at vi havde fået fra skoven, plus Trine og Taimi havde MANGE håndværke ting at de havde samlet ovre årene. Ideén var at lave juleting for at huset....kreative juleting... så jeg var så glad for deres hjælpe fordi "være håndværk-kvinde er ikke et af mit talent"!! Men min svigermor har "et øje" for ser ting at andre mennesker kan ikke se. Som hun går igennem skoven, kan hun finde den meste forbløffende ting på det skov gulv, så det var så sjov for at kigge hende laver sine juleting!

Last night I went to Have Oase (a local garden center) for an evening together with my mom in law and sister in law for a "Christmas Make and Take". We brought things that we had found in the forest, plus Trine and Taimi had MANY craft things they had collected over the years. The idea was to make Christmas things for the house...creative Christmas things....so I was so glad to have their help because being a "crafty (and I mean the handmade stuff definition, so no comments on that! LOL) woman is not one of my talents"!! But my mom in law truly has "an eye" for seeing things that other people cannot see. As she walks through the forest, she can find the most amazing things on the forest floor, so it was so fun to watch her making her Christmas things!

Vores projekter blev så flotte--inklusiv mine!!
Our projects turned out quite nice--including mine!!


Efter all projekterne blev færdig, tjente de æbleskiver og gløgg til os! En perfekt ting at slutte dagen!
After all the projects were finished, they served us æbleskiver and gløgg! The perfect thing to end the day!

Jeg tænker at jeg har opdaget anden Nørgaard jultradition for min list af ting at gøre hvert år!I think that I have discovered another Nørgaard Christmas tradition for my list of things to do each year!
